    Hi,

    Does WHM configure a firewall on install?. If it doesn't, do we need to setup a firewall (IPTables / IPChains?).

    If we need to setup IPTables / IPChains what ports are required to be open for the system to run?.

    Any info appreciated.

    Thanks,

    John

    ipchains is installed by default with the appropriate ports already open.

    Thanks Marty. Do you know where the ipchains config file is. I'd like to have a looksee and compare the ruleset to the one I had for a plesk box.

    Thanks,

    John
